An Oregon garbage collector was just going through his route when he saw that an American flag had been blown off its pole and scattered across a trash can. While he could have just ignored it, he instead stopped what he was doing, properly folded the flag like he'd learned to do in Boy Scouts, and returned it to its owner.
A neighbor caught the admirable act and notified the trash company. The company happily released the camera footage, which has since gone viral.
This incredible story shows that even the smallest, everyday acts of patriotism are meaningful. Many thanks to this hero for reminding us that patriotism is a way of life, not just something that comes out on the Fourth of July.
